When I use a dragon ascent Rayquaza in custom game, it can Dynamax but not mega evolve. Is this intentional? If yes, why?
In the teambuilder, the physical attack IV sets itself to 0 or 31 every time I click one of the Pokemon's moves (even if I don't change that move). Is this intentional? This happened to me when I was putting a sandy Wormadam on a gen 4 OU team, in case you were wondering.
 
I want to ask, where I complain about Pokémon Showdown rules?
I remember I played with a batom pass team, in gen 3, untill last year. But now, this year, my team become banned by a new rule of just one baton passer per team.
And even my other team who just have one baton passer, is also banned, because it is the Umbreon with Mean Look + Baton pass and it is also banned.
Where is the best space in this forum to complain about that? Or there is other sites where I can play pokémon without that rule?
Better, without any rule. I would love to have a Double Team in my team or a pokémon with Horn Drill,both also banned of this game.
And I also think the sleep clausule very annoying, because just put one foe to sleep make my Breloom with spore unuseless if the enemy changes,it's necessary the possibility to put all the enemy team to sleep.

These are smogon's rules not showdowns. Play Anything Goes if you want to play with anything that is legal on cartridge ignoring any of smogon's bans. For Gen 3, thats a challenge only format due to its general lack of play. Also please don't post here and post a thread in the PS forum.
 
I started playing showdown on a new browser and instead of having my moves below the pokemon animation is appears over the animation is a black box over the screen. I was wondering what setting I have to change to get it back to normal
 
If a private room (not a groupchat or a battle, a room) is deleted, is all its content (quotes, logs, and the like) permanently gone or can it be recovered somehow?

Hey, no idea where to direct this question. But is there somewhere I could ask for a consistent sparing partner, or partners, for showdown?

I like the immediacy of the site for testing teams and stuff, but i have bad nerves when facing randos on the ladder there. I'm also not very experienced at competitive pokemon.

I've asked in OU chat, and a few other places in the past, but was ignored lol.

Tier specific rooms are the best place to ask for sparring matches in those specific tiers. If you can't find anyone to play in there, you're probably not gonna have much luck anywhere else on the sim.

You could also check if the tier has a public discord that you could ask in. Just make sure you read the rules of each server to check if/where they allow for matchmaking.
 
I know they can be used in metronome battles, but I have really been looking forward to them being available in other settings. Any clue when they will be opened up?

When they become available to play with in SV most likely, as being released in a mainline game with a competitive mode is what dictates one's availability.
 
I received a message today in pokemon showdown that I am not allowed to go afk and brag about it.

my question is:
should I be worried of getting banned?

(the message was not a mistake/false report, I did that on purpose because that guy was playing a stall team and playing stall is a dick move).

If you are purposefully being rude to your opponent via chat messages we may take measures to handle that such as restricting your ability to chat (locks usually). If you were already warned for that specific instance of rule breaking I wouldn't be worried about a punishment unless you repeat the behavior. I get stall can suck to play against, but A. its a legitimant play style (the PS moderation team is not going to moderate teams beyond inappropriate nicknames) and B. being a jerk and bragging about being a jerk to other users isn't acceptable.
 
Hi guys, I play national dex and it says when I play I’m unranked despite playing a decent amount and getting to around 1410 ish sometimes. Is there a way I can make what I play ranked? I have an account and I know I’m not great but it’d still be nice to have the potential to be top 500 especially at the beginning bc it just reset. I have the Elo to be in top 500 at the immediate moment so it’d be nice to see.
thanks so much!
 
Was just told to come here:

Hi there! I didn't see an FFA option for Scarlet and Violet, and I wanted to know if it is going to be added. I live for the chaos of FFA and everything added in Gen 9 is going to multiply that chaos tenfold. If it's not, and you're PS staff, please do consider adding it! If not for me, then for all the trainers out there who have good friends and want to lose them in one easy step.

I've been told that Free-For-All will exist in Generation 9, but the developers are currently busy with the main formats and Free-For-All will have to wait until things calm down a little and they have the time to get it set up. All of us FFA fans are waiting for the party to get started, you're not alone :-)

We will no longer be under the umbrella of Other Metagames this generation, and I have not yet been told where I should post the Generation 9 Free-For-All thread. It's drafted and ready to go.
